Reply To: an taisce-and rumours of them going bust
Bugger Fin, you got in before me.
There were no objections to it from the public. None. not one. nada.
According to senior council representatives, it was the best planning application they had received and the most positive pre planning discussions ever undertaken.
It was defeated because of the casting vote of one individual and the political structure of the council and party politics. It had nothing to do with AnTaisce, really. They just provided the justification.
My low opinion of them comes from their attitude to conservation their ignorance of modern architecture……… and from the people withing the organisation that I met in preparing the application
oh, and from the attitude of their consultants, who never read a fucking thing you write, wear their intellect on their sleeve and have a chip on both shoulders.
